Spacers and no lift for stock tires/wheels?

I currently have stock wheels and tires (255/70/18) on my 2008 Wrangler Unlimited, but I need new tires, so I would like to go a little bigger. I planned to put on a 2.5 inch lift and 33 inch tires because I still need it to fit into parking garages for work. But, the 33 inch tires only give me about another inch of height. Given the cost of adding the lift, could I get away with adding spacers and wider tires on stock wheels, but no lift?

FWIW 33's will only raise you about 1/2" from your current height. 1/2" for every inch in tire size....
